Had on draft outside at Baltimore harbor

Appearance: pale straw, cloudy, glistening

Smell: hops and sweetness came through

Taste: strong hops up front, but also nutty and sweet aftertaste

Mouthfeel: excellent full bodied

Overall: great hoppy IPA on the sweeter side that pairs well with sunshine and might work with creamy pasta too

This *used* to be my favorite beer. Like cars, women, and cheese . . . tastes changes in growth, acquired; this used to be the one.

A good cheap six pack, these days... I get it for most friends, I know enjoyment to prevail, typically.

I feel like this is a true Brown Beer, something you can pull off the shelf, pour into a glass, and piss out knowing itwas't'n joyed.
